It is a shame when we went, there was barely a sole out here. It was well kept. We had a twilight rate of $25.00 for 9 holes with a cart. It was hilly & scenic. We are not serious golfers, but found the course...More

The room is very nice. Very very thin pillows so defiantly bring your own. It has a nice kitchen and has everything you need to get by with easy dinners. The hot tub in the bedroom was very nice.

Mixed couples group. The course was in good shape. Pretty challenging with varying difficulty. The four of us had fun. The staff was friendly. I should have gotten the bartenders name, he was very pleasant. The pro-shop staff was also accommodating.
